   THE MERRY WIVES
OF WINDSOR

BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE

Directed by Amanda Knott

First published in 1602, William Shakespeareís epic and delightful comedy is a rollicking tale of marriage, fidelity, trickery and love.
The puffed up and degenerate Sir John Falstaff, a Knight of the Garter, is seized with the outrageous idea that to seduce two of Windsorís wealthy merry wives will prove his virility and give him access to their money. The assignations are made, but with female cunning and a devilish plot involving their husbands, Falstaff is repeatedly tricked by the women.
He is hidden in a laundry basket full of dirty washing and thrown into the Thames. He is further duped and terrified in the eery moonlit shadows of a blasted oak in Windsor Great Park to which he is lured by a band of ruthless townsfolk seeking to revel in the old manís misery.
a most excellent and conceited comedie ..intermixed with sundrie variable and pleasing
